illness. it's an example of how you can form a friendship at these meetings. bill clinton had beat the sitting president, george herber walker bush, and they met similar to the way romney and obama are now, and now clinton and 41 are dear, close friends and have done many constructive things together around the world. i think, by and large, these meetings, the luncheon today, will be about optics. it's the photo ops. it's a chance to say america is united. there may be an opportunity here for mitt romney to come out and talk about the fiscal cliff or saying we must avoid falling off it towards something that could be helpful to the white house in the end. i remember back in 2008 it was john mccain that met with president obama. they met in his office in chicago. not at the white house. it seemed like that was the beginning, potentially of two leaders really working together. we have since seen that deteriorate. >> we can't judge personal kem tri. i think barack obama has more at stake in this lunch in the end than mitt romney. if obama can get romney to say something positive about

in the '90s with billi bill clinton. listen to what he says about the fiscal cliff? >> i think no deal is better than a bad deal. i think going off this cliff is less dangerous than letting things build up for a year or two. the president has staked out a position of nonseriousness, i think it's difficult for the house republicans right now to find any practical way to get his attention. >> he's saying go over the cliff rather than accept what the president wants right now. >> i don't need to remind you this is the house speaker who shut down the government and that didn't work so well for the republicans. going over the cliff is something i don't think they want to do earlier. as i keep saying, wolf. the irony to me here is that the larger issues are things they really understand how to resolve, if you look at all their proposals. they just can't get there, because they can't agree on this revenue issue. where does the revenue come from. do you raise the rates on the wealthy? if you do, how much? and that's actually in the whole realm of things a sticking point that one would presume

his son's aspberger's syndrome. two eye-opening visits with former presidents bill clinton and george w. bush. that'll do it. at the end of their journey, ron concluded this in part, quote, rather than sweat over it, i now realize how much i'd miss if he was ant an aspie, his humor, bluntness, obsessions with everything from video games to family. i saw through both presidents a successful future in tyler. in clinton, big possibilities for a boy with sharp mind and rough edges. in bush, tyler's gift of humor as a means to find confidence in himself and connections with others. i learned that while tyler was not my idealized son, he was the ideal one. in the oval office years ago, i thought bush had ordered me to love that boy in spite of his idiosyncrasies, now i realize i love my son because of them. okay. i'm going to cry. that's beautiful. >> thank you. >> sounds like an incredible journey for both of you. >> it was. it was my wife's idea. and it's a remarkable gift she gave us to make us go on the road together. and the two presidents, the graciousness they showed in spending time
